I am a 23 year old reefer about to graduate college looking for other reefers in the Colorado Springs area to talk reef with and perhaps trade corals, or just take a coral or two of my hands. My tank is a little more than 2 years old with a little bit of everything. This reef...
Some of y’all may have seen my previous post, i have decided a 75 gallon would be the best choice for me. So. Here is my potential stock list:
A dwarf or swallowtail angel(could a goldflake or cream angel work?)
a group or harem fish:
Pygmy angel trio
Nice to meet you, I run an SPS & LPS tank with Kyosuke.
I participated to gain a better understanding of coral and saltwater life...
I have a modest following on Instagram: @Hardy_Reef detailing the progress of my Red Sea Reefer 350 and figured I should document a build thread on Reef2Reef.
I'll start by showing where I currently am in the hobby and where I have come from. I dove into this hobby in 2018 with...
Well, where do I begin?
I'm a student of Architecture in my beautiful 3rd world country Namibia. A geological location that feels pretty much like the butt side of the world in terms of what is available on the other side of the world. Nonetheless we fellow like minded reefers all have what...
Over the last week I decided to get started on the 90g I impulse purchased back in Feb!
Building it out as a peninsula will make it a nice room divider (once I eventually break down the cube to the left of it). The plan is to use most of the equipment from my existing 74 tower in this tank when...
My name is David and I live in Manchester, England.
Thanks for stopping by my GazuntaiReef build thread!
UPDATE MONDAY 22 MARCH 2021:
I use Core7 Triton method to maintain most of my parameters.
The aquarium is around 280 Gallons.
Lightly stocked at the moment with both hard...
I started my first saltwater tank a little over a month ago slowly perfecting it.
40 Gallon breeder
Aqueon QuietFlow 30
Hydor 565gph wavepump
This is where I started to upgrade after 2 weeks of learning for what I want I needed at least a...
Hello Reef Buddies! I am new to the reefing hobby for the past year and a half. Started with a 20 gallon long tank and have been cycling a 40 gallon long for the last 8 mos.
My 20 gal is now packed with corals, but I wanted to share my progression of the tank, its ups and downs, and maybe get...
Ok so currently I have a fluval sea marine 3.0 46 watt on my 75 gallon tank. My tank is about the standard 75 gallon 48 by 18 by 24. I have a small Monti coral at the top of the tank. A few zoas. A goniopora I’ve had for about 6 months and he’s doing great. A Duncan coral, 2 acans, a toadstool...
I have a new Red Sea 425xl up and running. Been cycled for a while and already have a decent stock in the tank. Recently added 15 corals and have a question on flow.
I really want this to be a mixed reef but I read so many different things about flow. I’ve seen up to x80+ In some...
Welcome to my first build thread on R2R! About a year and a half ago, I started my first reef aquarium which was a BioCube 16. Even though I had been told nano tanks can be hard to maintain due to the small water volume, I had a great time with that tank and learned a TON. For me, it...
Hi fellow reefers!
I'm new here and thought I'd get a builder thread going to track and share my journey through this hobby. I had a 55G FOWLR about 14 years ago, and wow, have things ever changed!
Now that we are all spending so much more time at home I got re-inspired to start up this...
Hi guys, I recently setup my first saltwater tank and its about 6 months old, Its a 40 gallon breeder with 60lbs live rock, (i know its alot but its scaped well), 60 lbs live sand a tidal 55 hob filter, a NICREW 10,000k LED light and a powerhead, no sump, no skimmer. The tank is a mixed reef...

Tank - Fusion Pro 40 AIO
Light - Hydra 52
38lbs base rock
40lbs live sand

I started a nano tank in August, 2020. I took pictures, but never started a thread; so I figured I’d do that now!
My main goal for this aquarium is to have a relaxing place I enjoy sitting and watching the marine life. I grew up in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and was always around the ocean. I...
Well after a year with my fist tank I feel confident enough to go ahead and post my build. Although I have spent countless hours researching and pouring myself into this tank, I consider myself lucky to have the amount of success that I've had so far.
This tank was started December 19th 2019...
Thought I'd start off the new year by doing a build thread for my 3 year old mixed reef tank to document the progress of the things that I've been doing lately and share my journey of what I want my tank to eventually become. Hopefully I will get there.
I started this tank...
Hey all! Currently in the process for planning for a new tank and wanted to get some input on the equipment that I am planning for it. The tank is going to be the Red Sea Reefer XXL 750 (160 gal with 40 gal sump). All the major equipment I'll list below. Tank will mostly be a mix, LPS heavy with...
I am a first time reefer getting started with a CADE REEF 600 S2. I have had previous fresh water tanks and wanted to try my hand at a mixed reef tank.
Started my research on Red Sea AIO tanks, but then I came across the CADE systems. I liked the aluminum and glass stand, built in ATO, and pre...
I’m finally upgrading my Innovative Marine 14 gallon peninsula. It’s been running for 3 years, so planning to break it down is a bit bittersweet. But, it’s time.
We’re moving on up to a 40 breeder with a 20 long sump! And a whole lot of diy. So far, I have built the stand, installed the Fiji...
